My first 20 lbs.!!!!
I did it!!! I lost my first twenty pounds!!! That's 3 lbs. for the week. My weight today is 230 lbs. I know I have so much further to go, but I am so happy to have taken off that first 20. Now I need to stay focused on the rest of the weight. I want everyone to know that I am making the change for good. My husband will sometimes mention my "diet" and I tell him it's my "lifestyle change". I can't expect to diet for the rest of my life, but I can change how I eat on a regular basis so that I am healthy. My momentum is back. When I stopped to think about the last week when I lost no weight I realize it was that time of the month. I'm sure it had it's affect on my body. This may seem weird, but it's somewhat awesome for me to be able to say it was even that time of the month because as many of you may know I suffer from PCOS and very rarely get my period. Since we have started this journey I have been seeing the results of my body changing itself from within and beginning to reverse the PCOS. The doctors have told me this could happen and I am thrilled to see it is. I know maybe that is to much info for some and some people may think it's strange to be excited to get your period( I've often thought the only other person who would be this excited is someone who suspects they are pregnant but doesn't want to be) but it is thrilling for me to see my body reacting in the ways I want it to. Hope you all have a great week!
